Types & Areas Affected Alopecia Areata

Scalp, beard, mustache, eyebrows, eyelashes, any hairy skin part, arm-pits, pubic, total skin…

Alopecia areata may present in the form of several types. Simply, they affect different areas of the skin.

The most common being the scalp, where one may present with a very small hairless patch or many patches, small or as large as 15 cm diameter; or complete loss of hair on the scalp.

In addition or independently, one may have patchy hair loss on the beard area, in males; single or multiple, mostly multiple.
Lack of growth of or facial hair in males is a related but a different condition due to deficient testosterone hormone.

Some male patients may present with patches on the mustache.

Loss of eyebrows and eyelashes may be observed in severe cases, which are relatively more difficult to treat.

Arm-pits (axillae) and pubic area:
Patchy or complete hair loss in armpits or in the pubic areas could be seen in males and females, equally.

Other skin parts:
Alopecia may affect any hair skin areas. One may have single or multiple patches or extensive hair loss on different body areas.

Alopecia Totalis:
IN this variety, the patients may progressively lose hair on most body parts.

Alopecia universalis:
Complete hair loss on all the parts of the body, from head to toes, including eye-brows, arm-pits eyelashes, pubic hair, all over the skin; is called Alopecia Universalis.

Both of the above varieties, Alopecia Totalis and Alopecia Universalis, are not likely to improve with homeopathy medicines, as per Dr Shah’s experience at Life Force.
